Purity Movement: “She is Set Apart” Google Chat w/ CHRISTI GIVEN on Singleness & Lies the Media Tells Us
Written by Christi Given | September 14, 2015
Girls, our very own PI writer and singer-songwriter Christi Given is scheduled to be on a live Google Chat with the website and ministry She is Set Apart. Christi will join Tierraney Richardson, the founder of She is Set Apart, for a discussion about being single, the lies the media tells, the She is Set Apart ministry and more!
She is Set Apart is a nondenominational Christian women’s ministry. We are reclaiming what it means to be a single Christian woman. We know who we are and whose we are. At our core, we desire to see single women living life with purpose and eternity-focused minds. We view ourselves as a community of single women who sharpen and encourage one another to be productive for the Kingdom during their singleness.
Our vision is for singles to…
• understand that they are pursued, chosen, loved, valued and wanted already by Christ
• view their singleness from God’s perspective
• be productive single women for the kingdom of God by utilizing their gifts and talents to fulfill the great commission
• live out their single season with an eternity-focused mind

About the founder (from the official website):
She is Set Apart was started by Tierraney Richardson. A twenty-three-year-old Christian woman who has been single for twenty-three years. That fact alone sets her apart from many women on this Earth. Eventually she got tired of being discontent and living her life on pause because she lacked a diamond ring on her left hand. In April 2014, she read “Spoken For,” where Alyssa Bethke (http://www.amazon.com/Spoken-For-Embracing-Who-Whose/dp/160142597X ) shares a story that somewhat mirrored hers. This book helped her see that she was made for more. She began to understand that God has a purpose for her life and that the time is now to get busy fulfilling the purpose. She was freed. In her newfound freedom she got tired of seeing other women putting their lives on hold because their “Adam” was asleep or simply is never coming. She wanted women to understand that life does not begin once you experience a fancy event that results in a last name change. In fact, life has begun and there is a part that God designed you perfectly to play. Get busy pursuing your purpose.
Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. (Colossians 3:1-3)
If you would like to share YOUR story about honoring God in your time of being single, you can write or read posts about this topic and encourage other young women in the faith!
In your email please include:
• Your story, preferably in a Word document, between 500 and 1,000 (max.) words
• A three- to four-sentence bio of yourself
• Two or three quality/decent photos of yourself
• Links to your social media accounts
